Simple, Cheap Air Freshener Will Keep Your House Smelling Amazing

Everyone loves the smell of Febreeze. If you’ve splurged on a bottle, you probably quickly used it up, spraying it on just about anything with fabric and everything else. Not only does it smell amazing, but it can freshen up items, like your couch, that you can’t throw into the washing machine.

Only thing is, it’s expensive. A bottle of Febreeze costs about $5. Good news is there is something out there that smells and works even better. The best part, you can make it yourself. A bottle of this DIY solution cost only $.60 to make and will probably last you longer.

This DIY magical solution has everything the popular and expensive name brand has, except fabric softener. Unless you obsessively use it, which is possible because it smells that good.

NX2 tells you how to make it.

All you need is an empty spray bottle, four tablespoons of baking soda, a cup of boiling water and a quarter cup of Downy beads. Add the beads and baking soda in a bowl and pour in the boiling water. Stir it up and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Then use a funnel to pour it into the bottle.

You can use the spray on just about anything, especially carpets, furniture, clothes, curtains, rugs, etc. Your pets will love it too.
